ostarella: (Arrgh)
Usual dilemma - slept 3 hours this morning (almost to the minute), tried to sleep tonight and couldn't get there, now have an hour before I have to leave for work and feel like I could sleep for a week... sooo...

Just watched the pilot for the new Hawaii 5-0. Can't say I'm impressed. Kinda like the faux Battlestar Galactica - same character names but I'm not seeing any vestige of the old characters. The only things I really like about the show are the actors who play McGarrett (Alex O' Laughlin) and Chino Ho Kelly (Daniel Dae Kim). But otherwise, it seems to be the usual cop show, located in Hawaii versus Miami or New York. They added in the token female (and in fanfic terminology, the usual Mary Sue, so you know, superior fighter and excellent eye candy combined) and made McGarrett Jr a former Navy Seal (SF types seem to be another common denominator for tough good guys nowadays). I also kinda like the character Danno, but I'm still reserving judgment on that one. So current verdict - if you like action-heavy cop shows, you'd probably like this one, but don't expect a "revisited" Hawaii 5-0.

It was followed by another new cop show, "Blue Bloods". Makes me wish I could find tapes/vids of "Family in Blue" (TV show with Dirk Benedict, 1982) - see if this is at all similar. Sypnopsis sounds like it.

Appreciating more and more the A-Team movie, that's for sure - and I haven't even seen it yet! :p
